The 2023 World Cup final is behind us. Germany were eliminated weeks ago, but France and Argentina made it to the final which, after a thrilling match, saw Argentina emerge victorious on penalties. Admittedly, no one predicted all of this down to the last detail. But at least Argentina’s victory in the final could have been known beforehand by anyone who looked at the predictions made by EA Sports using the current version of their in-house football simulation, Fifa 23. In fact, this is the fourth time in a row that the winner of a football World Cup has been correctly predicted!
Will EA Sports correctly predict the World Cup winner again in four years?
All 64 World Cup games were simulated for the prediction. The football engine from EA Sports was used, which also serves as the basis for the FIFA games. However, France and Argentina did not make it to the final in the simulation; instead of the French, the Brazilians made it into the final, which Argentina finally won by a goal. After all, France was third in the simulated World Cup.

In 2010 the FIFA engine voted Spain World Champion, in 2014 Germany and 2018 France – just as it happened afterwards in reality! The next soccer World Cup will take place in 2026 in the USA, Mexico and Canada. We can be curious whether the then current version of the football simulation from EA will also correctly predict the title winner.
